The ladies and guests of the  Greenville County Republican Women’s Club greeted Fourth District Congressman Trey Gowdy  with several rousing standing ovations Monday at the Poinsett Club. Gowdy is a contender for the office of Attorney General of the United States should  Donald Trump become President. He has supported Trump since he became the Party nominee, and along with Third District Congressman Jeff Duncan is one of the most consistent conservatives in the House. He is a natural to be the chairman of the special committee holding hearings on the Benghazi  scandal.

The Clinton political machine could take the White House despite all the criminal investigations surrounding the candidate. For three decades Bill and Hillary Clinton have been all about avoiding paying for their crimes, proven and unproven.
Recently the tides began to turn and the winds to shift. It was announced by the White House that the cost of Obama-Care would increase as much as 100 percent next year. Some people had already been hit hard by Obama-Care including Small Businesses.

One national company in South Carolina has already increased premiums on their Long Term Care Policies by 40 percent. The policies stated and purchasers were promised that premiums would never increase and benefits would never be cut. Prior to the first rate increase, a letter informed policy holders that they were required to re-write all policies, not increase rates on the old policies.

You could pay the increased premium and have the same benefits, you could drop the policy and forfeit all the premiums you had paid, or you could keep your premiums low and reduce your benefits .

Republican Glen Robinson Challenging Liberal Democrat Senator Karl Allen in S.C. Senate District 7

As more African-Americans become financially and socially independent, they are feeling free to make their own political decisions, Patricia L. Dickson predicted in the American Thinker that “regardless of the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election, Donald Trump’s rise will force the Democratic Party to eventually have to address how it’s elected officials have neglected black Americans, it’s most loyal constituency.”

She wrote that the Democrat Party’s “worst nightmare” was when Trump reached out to blacks and asked: “What the ---- do you have to lose?”

In March of this year the SC legislature ended debate on a gas-tax hike meant to add $1.2 billion a year to the budget supposedly needed to fix SC roads and ease congestion and instead went with an alternative plan by the GOP to provide $400 million in additional funds with the reform of the state Transportation Department.

Why then is Greenville-Pickens, South Carolina, the Federal Government and ultimately the UN surging ahead with surveys and studies and plans to restructure our transportation system?

Horizon 2040, Greenville-Pickens new Long Range Transportation Plan under the auspices of GPATS (the Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study) is planning for the provision of regional transportation for a 777-square-mile area that’s home to more than 500,000 residents.  It covers most of Greenville and Pickens counties and smaller portions of Anderson, Laurens and Spartanburg counties.

When completed, Horizon 2040 will identify improvements to be funded through the year 2040.  The plan considers all travel modes, including automobiles, bicycles, pedestrians, transit and freight.  It insists that it is interested in the residents concerns and offers a prepared list of categories to which residents can respond.

Talley-backer calls conservatives “ignorant” and “nuts”

Roebuck, SC – The Lee Bright for Senate campaign today called on Scott Talley to disavow the deeply offensive and highly inflammatory statements made by one of his main supporters, David McGraw. McCraw was caught on tape using foul language and rudely disparaging Republican conservatives who support a strict-construction of the United States and South Carolina Constitutions.

Last Wednesday, Talley formally and publicly accepted McCraw’s endorsement, and McCraw, by his own admission, met with Talley to coordinate their mutual goal of ousting leading conservative Lee Bright from the Senate.
